Two dead in Peru after 7.3 magnitude earthquake

7.3-magnitude earthquake strikes off Peru

A 7.3 magnitude natural disaster shook southern Peru on Sunday, killing at least two people and injuring 65 others, the South American country's civil defense agency said.

The U.S. Geological Survey says the magnitude 7.1 quake was centered 35 miles (40 kilometers) from Acari, a small town in the Arequipa department of southwestern Peru. Acari is about an eight-hour drive down the coast from Lima, the capital. A magnitude-8.0 quake struck a coastal area farther north in August 2007, killing more than 500 people and injuring hundreds more.

In August 2016, a 5.4 quake centered in southern Peru and killed nine people and left 40 injured.

The quake struck 124km (77 miles) south west of Puqio in the south of the country at a depth of 10km (6 miles). It was felt as far away as Lima.

A second death was reported by Jorge Chavez, chief of Peru's Civil Defense Institute (INDECI). No tsunami has been detected and the threat of one has now passed.

A USA agency has issued a tsunami threat message for parts of Peru and Chile's coastlines after a powerful natural disaster. Chile's navy said the natural disaster did not meet conditions to produce a tsunami, Reuters reports.

It wasn't immediately clear if a tsunami warning has been issued.

President Pedro Pablo Kuczynski said rescue teams were on their way to verify the extent of the damage.
